Key features

The CLIL Resource Pack offers teachers a bank of over 120 motivating activities for the CLIL classroom. The Pack consists of a Photocopiable Resource Book and accompanying IWB (Interactive Whiteboard) software as well as over 60 songs, chants, poems and dialogues to enliven the classroom. The materials have been written for use with Primary and Lower Secondary aged pupils.

The CLIL Resource Pack is divided into 10 units covering topics such as Life Cycles, Food, Living Things, Forces and Motion, Weather and Water with cross curricular links to Science, Geography, ICT, Art and Craft, Music, Physical Education and English Literature. Each unit contains 6 lessons which are
appropriate for different levels of ability.

The CLIL Resource Pack includes a wide range of CLIL activities and worksheets, all supported by extensive Teacher’s notes plus extension activity ideas. The accompanying IWB CD is an effective teaching tool for bringing topics to life in the classroom through a variety of materials including games,
songs, activities, images and audio passages. Also provided is a bank of web addresses which can be accessed directly from the IWB by clicking on the link.

Key features:

  • each activity is simple to prepare, easy to adapt to individual classroom needs and motivating for young learners
  • each activity can be covered in one lesson
  • each activity focuses not only on cross curricular content, but also on functions, structures and vocabulary areas
  • each activity highlights lexical areas in a pre-activity warm up slot
  • each activity is supplemented with web links for sourcing further information and ideas




One of its great strengths is the breadth of material provided – every lesson has both an IWB activity and a photocopiable activity page, and many have audio tracks – and, as such, it could be a great timesaver for a busy teacher.

  1. I think this an interesting resource for teachers who are willing to experiment with CLIL. I find it especially interesting because it addresses primary level teachers too.
    I wonder whether this book will be available in Italy. By the way, I cold not find the price.
